Abstract

As organizations come to rely on the collection and use of personal information in order to complete the transactions and providing good services to their users, more and more user personal information is being shared with web service providers leading to the need to protect the privacy. Personal information is processed, stored and disclosed and often it generated in the course of making a commercial exchange. Credit card numbers, individual identity number, purchase records, monthly income, and related types of personal information all have important role with his this commercial information system. However this creation and use of personal information raises issues of privacy not only for the individual, but also for organizations. Easy access to private personal information will cause the misuse of data, no control over the information and others. Because of this, it's important to protect the information not only from external threats but also from insider threats. Data disclosure when performing a task in web-based application should be ensured. Within the electronic scenario, personal information have been collected, stored, manipulated and disclosed without the owner's consent. This paper will discuss on the relationship between personal information and its privacy. We also extended the model introduced by Al-Fedaghi as a way to control the personal information disclosure. We also suggested that the use of Hippocratic Database concepts as a way to control the personal information disclosure.
